Oprah Hosts Ralph Lauren And A List Of Stars At Lincoln Center (PHOTOS, POLL)

The stars were out and shining last night at Lincoln Center Presents: An Evening With Ralph Lauren, hosted by Oprah Winfrey.

The two icons raised more than $7 million, which will directly benefit The Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

The guest list read like a who's who of fashion, media and Hollywood. Uma Thurman, Jessica Alba, Barbara Walters, Diana von Furstenberg, Naomi Watts, Chanel Iman and Veronica Webb are just a few of the A-list attendees.

One of our favorite fashion moments of the night came from Kerry Washington. The "For Colored Girls" actress stepped out in a sleek black beaded gown that had a dramatic (and quite futuristic looking) silver beaded neck, designed by the evening honoree--Ralph Lauren. It was a serious upgrade of the classic black evening gown, don't you think?

Take a look at the rest of the stars that attended the amazing event.
